Are hats the root of your sudden breakouts?

As cold weather approaches, hats once again are becoming a must-have accessory.  But if you notice the arrival of hat weather has coincided with the arrival of sudden breakouts around your hairline and forehead, don’t worry! There’s hope. Because hats can trap sweat and bacteria against your skin, you may need to switch to something that’s a bit looser. If your hat is knit, wash it often, and if all else fails, switch to earmuffs or scarves.

Glossing over beautiful hair

Traditional hair color opens up the cuticle to deposit synthetic color into the strand. This changes the molecular structure of hair, often leading to weaker, damaged strands—especially if you color frequently. If you aren’t “open” to dye, then try enhancing your hair with a gloss. Hair glosses deliver high-shine and smoothness to your natural hair tones by sealing the cuticle, adding extra protection against breakage.

While a proper diet full of the right balance of iron, calcium, and protein can help, the real secret is protection from sun damage. Try using a sunscreen formulated for the hair and scalp, like Miracle Leave-In Conditioner from It's a 10.Read More >

This spring, waxing perfection

Hair removal is war, not just against the follicles, but against the bumps they leave behind. When a strand of hair isn’t entirely removed, the remaining root can get trapped under sebum (oil), dead skin, and dirt. This can lead to an inflamed, pimple-like bump, which can be painful and unsightly. What to do about it? Dot the area with a product containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide in the morning and at night.Read More >

The art of oils: moisturizing dry winter scalp

Growing up, we’re told that oil causes hair to look greasy, and so many of us have come to view oil as the enemy. But dry winter air and harsh shampoos can strip our scalp of too much oil, leading to brittle hair and dandruff. A mask with essential oils like lavender can help refresh hair and hydrate the skin, while also creating a barrier against damaging environmental effects.Read More >
